OUR MISSION: ANCIENT AND NEW
The faith we hold is ancient, going back to Jesus, back to his spiritual ancestors, back to those who first walked the earth and found holy ground. What we do is often based on really ancient patterns—worship and music; loving service to the poor, the hurting, the lonely; working for justice and peace; lively, fearless engagement and formation of minds and souls. But that faith is also completely contemporary, engaged in the culture and the needs of the moment.

OUR MISSION: WHAT WE ARE FOR
The dignity and worth of every person. An open minded, passionate commitment to truth. The importance of everyone’s own spiritual journey. God’s friends wherever we find them. Seeking Christ in every person who comes through the door. The sacredness of life’s rites of passage. The value of community. The hard work necessary to make sure that all are welcomed. Telling the truth about life’s challenges. A “user-friendly” church experience. Children and families.

OUR MISSION: WHAT WE ARE AGAINST
Claiming to have all the answers. Elitism and exclusivism, especially in Church. Bigotry for any reason. Authoritarianism. Indifference to injustice and suffering. Certitude in the face of ambiguity or superficial answers to hard questions. Boring sermons, bad liturgy and general cluelessness. (God help us; we don’t always avoid them!)

OUR MISSION: WHAT WE VALUE
Community, open hearts, open minds, open arms. Faith. Fortitude. Staying current, but equally staying rooted in tradition. Reason and honesty. Civic responsibility as South Florida residents, Americans and global citizens. Debate that allows for mutual respect. Music and beauty for their own sake. Joy in God’s creation. Anyone who makes an effort to get to know and follow Jesus.

St. Bernard de Clairvaux Church is located at 16711 West Dixie Highway, North Miami Beach, Florida 33160, USA. Father Gregory Mansfield, SCP | Interim Rector.
